heard some news about Geigers resort on bowstring.

back where i hunt there's another group that hunts the area also...........there a great group i've gotten to know albiet through deer season. anyway talking to them at the end of the day they stay at geigers and got to talking about there webcam and how i watch it all the time  during the winter and how they might be the only ones that plow roads out on the lake.

the guy said it doesnt sound like she may do it anymore, doesnt really like doing it and by the way it sounded there closing up for the winter after deer hunting. he said she's a duck from a different breed and she wants to turn it into a bed and breakfast kinda thing???/ :scratch: :doah: not sure how that'll fly up there????

Our bay was ~ 2/3 ice by early Tuesday but the wind opened that back up by late Thursday. Lakewood has been better about keeping theirs up with the new owners too. It's in the drop menu under Blog on the top https://lakewoodlodge.com/

A post on Nextdoor from someone on the south shore by that resort said that they were surprised that all they could see early this morning was snow out on the main lake all the way up to the resorts in the NE corner.

That treeline on the left is the south shore of the bay & that weedy point on the right is just south of where the neighbor's lift & dock sit. So the camera is looking WNW.

There's definitely been people out on smaller lakes. The lake I live on, probably 500 acers and roughly 70 ft deep froze over Tues. I work pretty steady until Dec 5th then I have some time off, hopefully get out. In all honesty, I ice fish out of winter boredom. Once I can take the snowmobile and otter out, I'll be out 2-3 times a week but by no means do I work super hard besides the occasional bushwacking into some remote lakes

2-5 inches, ice is starting to look dark after the past few days of it warming up

It looked like quite a bit of open water on The Narrows yday PM to me. The west side is better this morning but the east looks about the same to me. Nothing on Nextdoor on ice conditions on our lake yet either.

Some snow up there this AM the way it looks but it's not 'sposed to amount to much. In front of Geiger's look kind of iffy IMO this morning.
